Abstract
Dry matter production, and nutrient content and depletion were studied at 3 growth phases in an NPK trial on a soil relatively well provided with nutrients. Significant differences were found at the flowering stage between dry matter production in the different NPK treatments and between replications. Mineral N, in particular, affected the depletion of other nutrients. The species had similar N and K requirements to those of other agricultural species but needed less P. The high dry matter yield of unfertilized control plants showed that agrimony has a marked capacity for utilizing nutrients already in the soil.
